Chef Patron and Creative Director Simon Shaw says

I’ve been blown away by the response we’ve enjoyed to El Gato Negro’s plans for Liverpool. I’m looking forward to opening the doors to El Gato Negro Exchange Flags on August 2nd and to being a part of this incredible city.

Guests at the iconic Exchange Flags restaurant can expect to enjoy Simon’s signature tapas dishes, served up in the beautiful open-plan restaurant which seats 240 covers. A mix of booths and table seating will provide an intimate dining experience while guests soak up the atmosphere and enjoy the service and standards which are our hallmark.

Solo diners – or those looking to get closer to the action – will love the chef’s table, where they can watch Shaw’s award-winning team at work on the charcuterie counter overlooking the historic square. A private dining room will provide privacy for celebratory and business dinners,

The impressive island bar – complete with seating for 70 guests – is a centrepiece of the extensively refurbished unit. It will serve an extensive range of classic cocktails, premium local produce and a select range of Spanish wines and sherries.

El Gato Negro’s outdoor terrace will be a firm favourite for sun seekers with a further 40 covers for guests looking to drink and dine in the sheltered, sunlit square. This elegant space is covered and heated to ensure maximum enjoyment… even if the weather’s not perfect!
